TV presenter Cat Deeley has opened up about her atypical methods of staying well after an unexpected symptom of Covid left her feeling like she had MS (multiple sclerosis).
The 47-year-old, who had Covid in January 2021, revealed she had been using infrared saunas and an oxygen chamber.
She explained in a new interview with Women’s Health UK: “I started going to the infrared sauna after I got the Covid. I was left with aches and pains in my hands, and the doctors couldn’t help so I started looking for other things to make myself feel a little better.
“The symptoms [from Covid] I had something a bit like MS, achy joints, no strength in my hands, and a strange thing happened when I looked down – there’s a nerve at the back of your neck – and it felt fizzy, almost electric.
“I saw that they often treat MS patients with oxygen tanks because it helps with regeneration. I found a place locally that has one, and they also have a red light sauna and a cryo-chamber, and I was like ‘in for a penny in for a pound!’”
Unlike traditional saunas, these saunas use infrared lamps to heat the body directly and do not heat the air, which means you can spend more time in them.
According to Healthline, the heat is said to penetrate the body deeper and allow you to sweat more intensely at a lower temperature.
Cat continued: “I have to read a magazine. So I have my glasses on, at the same time I try to put my feet up the wall. Completely exposed. I mean… thank God, no one can see me.
“Then I sit there for 45 minutes, get really sweaty, have a shower, wash my hair and then jump in the cryo tank.”
It comes after Cat and her husband Patrick Kielty returned to the UK from Los Angeles after living there for 15 years.
While there, the SMTV star picked up plenty of health and wellness tips, including juices and supplements.
She told the Telegraph last year: “It’s a lot easier to be healthy in LA. I would get up in the morning, get a coffee, put on my leggings and trainers, take the dog down to the canyon and walk up again…
“Back in London, it just doesn’t work like that. Although I’ll do some yoga classes online, I haven’t quite got my heart out yet, but I’m not going to beat myself up about it.”
Last week, the mother-of-two made her This Morning debut as she introduced I’m A Celebrity star Josie Gibson.
